OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

A little about me:
Our son, Ben, just committed to the Navy Reserves...after serving in the Navy Sea Cadets...The Commodore Perry Division. He did extremely well on the military entrance exam and we met with the Navy Recruiter - they will begin processing him this week for preparation upon graduation from high school in May. SO many different emotions from my heart and mind taken place these past few years and now preparing as his senior graduation isn't too far off. He is definitely ready...so proud of him. He will continue his Criminal Justice education while he serves in the Reserves.
I am here to support my

You may want to make changes 3 and 4 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile). There may be other changes you will want to make as well.

I see your Sailor is in "A" School for MA. Master at Arms is a rating very dear to my heart since my Sailor is an MA. The discussion, Break down week by week, within San Antonio MA's will let you know what happens at NTTC Lackland (San Antonio). The Rating Information Card for MA can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/enlisted/rating_info_cards/ma.pdf. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

Since you have a ailor, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to "Enlisted."
